I like. she pretty and bitch :P

Don't know if i like the 'nose' though. PArt of the weird charm of the torlls is the lack of them. Gives em a more exotic design.

All the backgrounds have been so beautiful and good so far, the sprites are also equally as good to look at. Props to the artist(s)/art team.

(also the Troll Scott Pilgrim poster makes the room 10 times better)
FF: Personally, I think my skills are near-mediocre at best. that's really all there is to say on the matter.

FF: I couldn't figure out how to get it in the profile field so here's my YouTube channel

Gosh this looks so good I can't wait to play them all :kitty: :kitty:

I'm particularly excited about the way that they're keeping the openbound style mixed with the visual novel style. I've always loved the Dancestors and this has been in my sights for a while now :rosecool:

A fun thing we're doing for Befriendus is the inclusion of SCORPINA'S JOURNAL: 12 short chapters chronicling the tales of the Beforan ancestors. Making a new friend grants you a chapter, but you'll have to find the the journal itself first!

Scorpina's journal is an entirely optional setpiece and has no real narrative impact on the core game, so if ancestors aren't your thing, you don't need to worry about keeping up!

I'm super jazzed to learn more about the Beforus Ancestors actually, and especially since we're following Ancestor!Vriska it'd be cool to see what kind of person she grows to be without all of those key backstory elements from growing up on Alternia.

Oh fantastic! I didn't know we had the director of befriendus on here! I first saw the blog/screen shots of the game on tumblr through my fantroll blog and thought it was such a great idea :0!!!

I'm super pleased to let you all know that we've implemented accessibility features like turning quirks and text colours off! Mituna's quirk is a very good way to show this off. Everybody give Gio a HUGE round of applause.

Image

Image
It also applies to history, for anybody wondering.

Image
We also let you know about the Ren'Py "Additional Accessibility" menu where you can change/scale fonts and line spacing, which is really cool.

(we're still working on the game so some things are obviously subject to change based on bugtesting and such but this is where we're at right now and it's awesome)

I'll probably personally use that on Kankri and Mituna's route, no offense to their quirks they are just nearly unreadable to me
